Last night I attended the Laing and Buisson Annual Independent Healthcare Awards dinner.

It was a fantastic event that really demonstrated how the independent healthcare sector are driving innovation and strive to provide high quality care for their patients.

The nominees and award winners were drawn from across the sector, representing the for profit, not for profit and charitable providers of care.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of them and urge them to continue with their very good work.
